Friday Inspo

It's my ultimate favorite time of year. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't giddy with excitement. To make this even better, I'll be having a white Christmas this year because no later than tonight, we are headed over to the Great White North, where I hail from. Make no mistake, this is the only period where I have any fondness for snow. But you see, I go crazy for the holiday season. I love the tunes, the decorations, the spirit, the smell in the air. I love giving presents, receiving them (but not as much as giving), spending time with family, cooking and baking with my mom, not to mention eating and the abundance of wine. I love movie marathons, snuggling up on the couch with the hubs, the dog and my brothers. I love not getting out of my pajamas all day, drinking hot cocoa and catching up on all the magazines I haven't read since September in front of the fireplace. You get the gist.

As you can imagine, this week's mood board is of the extremely festive persuasion. Because 'tis the season and I want to shout it from the rooftops. I hope you guys all have amazing holidays xx

Miami Art Basel 2014 - Day 2

Fashion Over Reason at Art Basel Miami 2014, COS chambray shirtdress, South Beach

On day two of Art Basel (see day 1 here), there was more of everything: more sunshine, more ocean views, more art, more gallery hopping, more fun (if that's even possible). We spent the day in South Beach instead of Wynwood to check out some of what the free galleries there had to offer.

While the Wynwood section is all about street art and urban spray paint prodigies, the Miami Beach section is way more of a structured, civilized -- dare I say more bougie -- part of the whole extravaganza. So it was an interesting change from the painted outdoor facades that I've come to know and love from Miami's art scene.

Obviously, I had to take advantage of all the palm trees for endless photo opportunities. I said this in the last post, but it must be reiterated: the fact that there is art everywhere you go, everywhere you look, is just such a treat. I present to you day 2 of how I experienced Art Basel, trying to take in as much as I could during the day, and then nighttime being slightly off the grid, you know how it is.
